Sonam Kapoor silences a journalist who asked her about the ‘deleted’ Deepika Padukone video. At a recent event, Sonam was asked why she deleted the video of Deepika Padukone supporting PadMan. Here’s how she reacted.
Trust Sonam Kapoor to enliven the atmosphere wherever she goes. If not for her sartorial statements, the fashionista is known to make explosive statements fearlessly in public. Her latest appearance at the 25th year celebration of a fashion brand in Mumbai was no different. Sonam styled herself in a colour blocked dress with a blazer draped over her shoulders. Her look was elevated with a pair of pant boots. While she did make heads turn with her outfit at the event, there was something else that is getting her in the limelight once again. During the media interaction, a reporter asked Sonam why she deleted the video of Deepika Padukone supporting PadMan, from her Instagram account.
Not one to avoid uncomfortable questions, Sonam clarified that it is a misconception that she deleted the video. And the way she did it is something worth watching. It is commendable how Sonam did not dismiss the question and handled the situation with ease. Watch the video right here and see for yourself.

Well, now that we know it was really a glitch and the video still exists on Sonam’s Instagram account, let us acknowlegde how Sonam sent out the message that a woman should support another woman. “I can’t imagine a woman is asking me these questions… Do you not like other women? Don’t create controversy where there is none. I expect a woman to support other women, not create these situations. So support other women, so we can all move forward,” she said. Well done, Sonam.
